Fan noise winding non stop

I have an '06 RR HSE thats treated me kindly. However, no sooner was I appreciating what a great truck this and how well its done for me, I get a fan noise running non stop like a jet taking off.
I imagine its the fan clutch and soon as it stops snowing I'll check to see if it moves freely.

My question is assuming the fan clutch is bad:

A) What part(s) should replace it? Genuine LR? Aftermarket?
B) How difficult a DIY is it and if any special tools are required?
C) What can I expect the bill if I take it to local shop?

Happy travels!

You’ll need a fan clutch wrench 32mm I believe and a pulley holder to break the clutch loose. Reverse of normal. You will need to pull the auxiliary serpentine belt, the upper fan shroud and electrical connection. Put a bit of anti-seize on the threads when you reassemble.

Aftermarket is fine for the part

1972 MGB
2006 Bonatti Grey LR3 Proud Rhino Bumper, Baja Rack and TF underbody skid plates almost 33's lol
2007 Chawton White LR3 Proud Rhino lift rods
1983 Trident Green 110, TerraFirma suspension, and bumpers
1991 Range Rover Classic Hunter Eastnor Green
